Short video I made about Jean Ridge. This site was special to me, the flying was rather easy but turbulent (except the launch). What I loved about it was the geology. The site reminded me of how much I loved geology when I studied it at UNLV, then I went to UAF for my masters and my interest waned. I really enjoyed my time studying geology at UNLV; they do a fine job down there. This site has nice ventifacts made of vesicular basalt all over the setup area and aeolian sand fills in the gaps between ventifacts/basalt… There is a nice ash/rhyolite tuff beneath the basalt flows that pokes out in some places...very anti-glider/pro sketch launch geology. I kept looking out the corner of my eye at all those pointy ventifacts waiting for the wind to approach a sane velocity. I loved it though; it was secluded tucked away behind a playa that created a high pressure system that feeds laminar winds from the west straight up the ridge. When I get back to work tomorrow I will try to look at the geology the way I used to. I feel like I will appreciate my job more after this trip. This site is fantastic, absolutely fantastic. I will return, and fly the hell out of it, along with Mt. Potosi.
